    Tough to say. We really know nothing about the Note 4 yet. There's always the chance that you'll just keep waiting. By the time the Note rolls around you may want to wait for the G4. Go play with the phone in store and see how you like it.

    Well, if you're not in any hurry you might as well wait. At least then you can compare the G3 to the Note 4 head to head (by then there may even be a S6, M9 and Z4 to compare to).

    I may eat my words here , the G3 will outshine the N4 in terms of build and design.

    The N4 will throw it all in and no doubt be a spec whores wet dream.

    But the G3 has that cutting edge where time and thought went into it, quite like the Z2.

    Samsung just seem lazy in that regard.

    It has been mentioned that the N4 is going to be a new design hmmm the dimples will be less perhaps lol instead of 44 they will opt for 23 maybe hmm

    Jokes aside no doubt the N4 will be a great smartphone but you can go on and on and on and on and on OK you get the point.

    The G3 I like many many others appreciate the build and design and great features it has on offer :-)

    I'm a spec boy I want the latest and greatest, it doesn't help that these companies are BS us with "Prime" versions. I know it's not available but it can still be ordered and it does mess your your mind.

    Having said that I will probably go with the G3 because size issue, my limit is around 5.2" but LG somehow squeezed it all together.

    Major difference is the s pen. If you don't need those features then either phone will be awesome. Note 4 will most likely have 2k display as well.

    I saw the one guy who told you wait for the Note 4. Honest truth, if you wait for the better thing, you'll always be waiting because the next thing might be better. Honestly, play with the Note 3, play with the G3 in store. Anything new on the Note 4, will probably be a first version Samsung "Lets see what sticks" method, but if you prefer the size and S-Pen of the Note 3, then give it a wait but understand price will also be involved.

    Personal choice, I have a Nexus 5, had a ton of LG phones and got me into disliking anything LG. The Nexus 5 renewed my faith, the G3 has had all my attention since it was announced and the 3GB of ram, 32GB of memory and an SD slot make it the phone I want but can't afford because I'm unemployed. I was into the idea of the Note 3 but really, unless you're a drawer, most you can do on a phone smaller, and my hands big so the 5.5" works well for me on the G3. I told my brother of this phone, he saw it in store at best Buy, he fell in love, he is an iPhone user.

    Forgot to mention. Expect to pay more for the note 4 if you wait. I'm surprised that the g3 is only 579.99 off contract.

    I'm really loving the G3 and can honestly say I wouldn't pick anything over it...

    I've been having this difficulty as well. I know I will want the Note 4, and I currently have the Note 3. My first jump upgrade is available this month but if I get the G3 I might be turning right back around for a Note 4.

    I'm gonna wait for the note 4 then decide. Both are beasts of devices, the s pen is what I like about phablets, and the note will have a little better specs with the rumored snapdragon805 which hopefully will fix up any issues the 801 was having with the QHD screen on the g3 and the instances of lag.

    I realized after I posted that I wouldn't have to wait since T-Mobile removed the time limit. But assuming I end up really wanting the N4 over the G3, yeah kinda. The G3 has a smaller screen, no pen, and the speaker is in the back.

    The note 4 will have great specs, but LG is a premium manufacturer, Samsung have lost their premium status, way to much plastic and to much bloatware.

    OP, I, too, and having the same fit of indecision. The G3 is pretty sweet, but I know that I'm also looking forward to what the Note 4 will offer. Ughh this wait...

    I loved the N3 and I know I'll love the N4. With that said, I loved the G2 and I love the G3 which is my current phone. I'll have 3 upgrades by the time the N4 is released and I'll use one to get it. Best of both worlds.

    But right now if I had to choose between the N3, S5, G2, and M8, it would most definitely be the G3. Build quality is second to none and kind sexy!!

    Yeah this is my dilemma as well. The g3 sounds amazing... I think I'd really like it. I've tried HTC.. Samsung.. So trying LG for the first time has my interest.. I like tech so.. :P.

    Sigh.. If only I was rich... It would be easy .

    I'm getting my G3 on Thursday. I'm going to see if I like and use it as much as possible and when the Note 4 comes out i will go out and compare the two. If I don't like the G3 I will edge up to the Note 4 and give my son the G3. But If the G3 is awesome and I love it i wait until fall of 2015 for either the Note 5 or G4

    The thing I worry about with the Note 4 is that it will be bigger than the Note 3 which is already pushing the size limit for me. Right now I switch between an iPhone 5s (too small) and a Note 3 (borders on too big). I'm sorely tempted by the G3.

    The G3 you won't believe until you hold one how great it feels and looks, you will be surprised at how they managed to fit a 5.5" display in this form, oh and that curve hmmm I like curves lol

    The G3 is a very well made device! I was not expecting it to be and/or feel this premium. Its thin yet solid in the hand and feels great to hold. Why the hell can't Samsung who has BILLIONS make a device that feels and looks as premium as this?!? I'm sure they will take notice and re-design their line for next year.

    I had the Note 2 and the Note 3. I tried the G2 and went back to the Note 3. Now I have the G3 because there was no way I was going to wait until September or October to see what the Note 4 will be. I rarely use the S-Pen, but Iove the screen size. With the G3 I don't fee like I have gone backwards in screen size compared to the N3. The G3 is very smooth and fluid. I love the design build of the phone and I like the buttons on the rear. There are 3 things I have found that are a bit troubling with the G3: 1. battery life is not as good as the N3, but it's not bad; signal strength is not as good and is about 5db less than the N3; Bluetooth is not as strong as the N3. When multiple devices are connected the G3's BT connection starts to break up. I might not be typical of the normal user, but I will have a BT headset for talking, BT audio through my car for music and BT connection to my Garmin for traffic, etc. The headset will start to break up and music will skip if all 3 are connected, even if they are not all sending. The N3 handled it all without issue. I had the same trouble with the G2 and hoped it would be resolved with the G3.

    All in all I really like the G3, especially the screen and build. I still have 9 days to return it, but at this point I don't plan on it. I also bought the ½ price G Watch when I got the G3 and I like how they work together. I know I could do the same thing with my N3, but I probably would't have paid full price for the watch.

    I was on the fence with same question, went with the g3 and couldn't be happier.

    I've owned the note 2 and 3 even though I have never really been a fan of touchwiz. Liking the g4 software and love the buttons in the back of the device, no more accidently hitting the power button when holding the phone by the sides.
